My experience with photography starts with a six-year-old boy holding up lights for his dad at a party. When we arrive home, my dad gives me his state-of-the-art Hasselblad camera's detachable back and teaches me to rewind the film. For me it was all fun, but what I didn't realize is that with my father's instructions, he was preparing me for my own future profession.
I went to photography school at Focus in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the age of 16. And now, thousands of weddings, events, studio shots, aerial photos, and family photos later, this is still what I do and what I love.
Ueda (pronounced "WAY-da") is the name my father chose to be his when he started his business as a Japanese man in Brazil over 50 years ago, and I am carrying it on now as a Brazilian man in the United States.
My style is a mix of photojournalism and illustrative. I enjoy the art of photography which lies in capturing the perfect moment when something beautiful is expressed: an emotion, a relationship, an idea.
I'm an active member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). I'm the only photographer from Madison that is a member of the WPJA.

Couldn't Ask for Better!
Romulo was everything I wanted in a photographer! Our photos are more beautiful than I could have imagined. I absolutely adore them. My favorite aspect was that he didn't only focus on the bride and groom, but got amazing shots of our family, wedding party, and friends. The candid shots are everything I hoped they would be. He was so easy to work with, and I felt so comfortable during the entire process. If I ever need photos for any other event, I will not hesitate to contact him!Sent on 03/09/2020

Thoughtful Photographer with Incredible Skill!
Working with Romulo was an absolute pleasure. We came from out of town to do a very particular engagement photo shoot at The House on the Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Initially I had to reschedule last minute because our flight was cancelled - Romulo was reassuring and totally understanding. Once we had rescheduled to the following week, I ended up being late and forgetting to alert staff we would be taking pictures. Romulo never missed a beat - he was there early, was patient, helpful, and incredibly understanding. Neither my fiance nor I had had our pictures taken by a professional photographer before, but Romulo easily calmed our jitters and made us comfortable and confident. He was professional and accommodating every step of the way through the process. Our pictures turned out phenomenally and we received some truly amazing and thoughtful compliments on what are definitely the best photos we've ever had taken of each other together! If you want a professional, thoughtful photographer, look no further than Ueda Photography.Sent on 12/13/2019

Rômulo from Ueda Photography is one of my favorite wedding photojournalists in Madison WI area. We have photographed weddings together numerous times in the past few years and it’s been a pleasure. Romulo is very calm, laid back professional that will ease your day and will create one of a kind wedding imagery. Ueda Photography is on my preferred photographers top list.
I have met a lot of photographers around this area and none quite like Romulo! He eye for capturing an energetic moment is unmatched! His dance floor pictures are some of the best I have ever seen. He has the gift of sight with his camera and I highly recommend him to you! DJ Andrew Paul Larson Saturns 8 Entertainment
I am a professional wedding videographer who has worked along side Romulo on several occasions. Romulo is a very experienced and highly skilled photographer. Having grown up in a family of professional photographers, Romulo mastered his art at a young age. You only need to see his gallery on his website to know this for yourself. Best of all, Romulo is one of the most personable wedding professionals I know. His relaxed and courteous manner is especially helpful for everyone being able to stay in character during the wedding day. I recommend Ueda Photography without any hesitation.
